A Politics of the Dreamtime : Destructive and Regenerative Rainbows in Alexis Wright's Carpentaria, Frances Devlin-Glass , single work criticism
Focusing on Wright's representation of the land, the river and the cyclone, the essay attempts to demonstrate 'how playfully, flexibly and experimentally Wright moblilises a new form of magic realism in which realism (the vital) and the supervital are demonstrably folded into one another. In doing so, she creates a powerful new politicised narrative for our times, one that expresses a crisis of representation which is simultaneously committed to exposing an ecological crisis' (405).

Future Tense : Dead Europe and Viral Anti-Semitism, Catherine Padmore , single work criticism

'Sweet Mary of Kilmore' : Discrimination in Australian Folklore Scholarship, Keith McKenry , single work criticism
The author traces the history of an originally Irish folk song 'Sweet Mary of Kilmore' that never made it into Australian folklore collections. He argues that the reason for this was a scholarly discrimination in favour of shearers', bushranging and drovers' songs which fitted into the 'Australian Legend' stereotype. The article contains the transcription of two Australian versions of the ballad, one orally transmitted, the other one found in Russel Ward's manuscripts.
